6:01 pm
work together and impress upon the american administration, including president trump himself, how important it is to defend canadian jobs and the impact of the positive innovations related to this aircraft. we will continue to stand up aircraft. we will continue to stand up strongly in defence of canadian jobs, against unwarranted actions by boeing. i wonder if i could follow up boeing. i wonder if i could follow up on the bombardier point. did you discuss the possibility that the uk and can delete mechanic could use their muscle to put pressure. by aircraft in the future. there is a live debate in the cabinet about whether a future european relationship could be based partly on the canadian relationship. would
6:02 pm
you thing, there is a counter argument, that you could follow the arguments of the european court of justice, and stay very close to the eu rule book. which option do you favour? i think on the bombardier point, we want to make sure that we are protecting jobs in this area, obviously for the uk, the bombardier jobs in northern ireland are important and we want to protect those. of course, there is a process thatis those. of course, there is a process that is being undertaken now, there will be a preliminaryjudgment in the us next week in relation to this case, but there will be a preliminaryjudgment. it case, but there will be a preliminary judgment. it will case, but there will be a preliminaryjudgment. it will be possible for us to continue to work together to bring about the resolution we want. i don't recognise the binary approach you have two the question of brexit and the future relationship of the uk with the eu, post—brexit. i have a lwa ys with the eu, post—brexit. i have always said that we are not looking to ta ke always said that we are not looking to take a model off—the—shelf of a
6:03 pm
relationship that currently exists, because of the position that the uk is in. it is unique, we are already in the eu, so we have a relationship with the eu already, when we come out we want to ensure that we can negotiate a good deal, a bespoke deal, a deal that is right for the united kingdom. ithink deal, a deal that is right for the united kingdom. i think the deal that will be right for the uk will also be in the economic interests of the eu as well. on the issue of boeing, it is very clear that canada is embarking upon a ritual meant process to strengthen our military and do right by the men and women of the canadian forces by ensuring that we have the right equipment and the ability to do theirjobs responsibly. that includes replacing oui’ responsibly. that includes replacing our fleet of fighter jets. responsibly. that includes replacing our fleet of fighterjets. we have obviously been looking at the aircraft from boeing is being a potential for significant
6:04 pm
procurement of our new fighterjets, but we won't do business with a company that is busy train to suit us company that is busy train to suit us and put our aerospace workers out of business. —— sue us. i will have to say that in french, because i saw the quebec reporters perk up on that one. translation: we have committed ourselves to a renewal of our air flotilla , ourselves to a renewal of our air flotilla, especially in regard to fighterjets. flotilla, especially in regard to fighter jets. everyone knows flotilla, especially in regard to fighterjets. everyone knows that we are currently considering super hornets as a potential option, a possibility. but what is sure is that if boeing were to continue to insist on eliminating tens of thousands ofjobs insist on eliminating tens of thousands of jobs in
6:05 pm
insist on eliminating tens of thousands ofjobs in canada through their attack against bombardier, as a government, they should not expect us a government, they should not expect us to buy planes of them if they are attacking our industries.l us to buy planes of them if they are attacking our industries. a question about brexit, today supposedly you have changed the structure of your negotiating team. oliver robins will no be running the negotiation, is another sign that you got this wrong in the first place, and that your negotiating structure has been a shambles? no not at all. what it is a sign of is that the negotiations are getting into a more detailed and intense phase. as a result of that i think it is right that oliver robins concentrates on that, and a different structure will be put in place, a different answer will be put in place in terms of the running and the management of the exiting of the eu and the secretary there. theresa may addressing the point
6:06 pm
made by financial times journalist concerning oliver robins who has left hisjob there concerning oliver robins who has left his job there amid allegations that of disputes with the brexit secretary. she made it clear that that was not a sign that the brexit talks were failing in some way and that britain wasn't on top of the situation. she in fact made it clear that this was a sign that negotiations were making progress. and also referring to the situation of brexit and borisjohnson's installation. she said that the uk government is driven from the front and we have the same destination in sight, that of course a reaction to amber rudd's suggestion about boris johnson recently. that he was a back—seat driver when it comes to the actor talks. justin trudeau made
6:07 pm
it clear that he wanted to see a speedy and smooth transition from a deal structure with the eu, with canada and trade, to a new trade deal with the uk. both leaders at the news conference talked about their shared, common goals for both countries and the need for a new trade deal as soon as possible. we will move on now to the rest of the day ‘s news, and the boss of ryanair has said that he is sorry for messing up after the budget airlines after cancelling flights. he blamed the weather and scheduling, and faced a compensation pay—out for out. we will pay compensation to those
6:08 pm
passengers are entitled to compensation. it's our passengers with flights cancelled over the next two weeks. he flatly denies that a shortage of pilots are to blame. that is not what pilots have told the bbc today. they have told. they have been living in droves because of how they've been treated. they are. last year alone 140 pilots left ryanairfor rival are. last year alone 140 pilots left ryanair for rival norwegian. this are. last year alone 140 pilots left ryanairfor rival norwegian. this is the —based ryanair, stansted airport. there have been 17 cancellations today as a result of these changes, there will be 11 tomorrow, 15 the next day, and so on, and so on for weeks. passengers have been venting on social media. one says that he will never book
6:09 pm
with ryanair again one says that he will never book with rya nair again because one says that he will never book with ryanair again because they have been left to their own devices. another says they have e—mailed her about car hire and accommodation, shejust about car hire and accommodation, she just wants to know if you'll make her sister's wedding. ryanair left me standing out. they gave me no option to get back home. i had to spend £500 on myself and my partner to get back to london on another carrier. we are about halfway through what is going to be an all—day journey on through what is going to be an all—dayjourney on planes. it is been a very frustrating experience. iron disappointed about that. even if they gave me a week's longer notice, that would've been better, but they didn't, they text me the evening before the morning i was supposed to fly out. but he disappointed, but a holiday out of it, and lost money as well. ryanair is now under pressure to get people's money back. they should not
6:10 pm
quibble, they should give it back straightaway. rather than people having to fight for their compensation. ryanair says it will all be over by november. the bike one current pilot told me that he fears a repeat next year, unless they get better at keeping their stuff. leicester back to our top story, brexit. while attending a un, he responded to allegations that he is a back—seat driver over the brexit process , a back—seat driver over the brexit process, after he set out his vision for leaving the eu in an article over the weekend. the article, i hope, speaks itself. as the back—seat driving, honestly, there is one driver in this car, to use amber rudd's metaphor. it is theresa may. what am i trying —— what i
6:11 pm
trained to do is to sketch out the incredibly exciting landscape. let's be clear, what kind brexit transition d1, how long should that transition d1, how long should that transition be, and what's owed money should the british government pay to the eu during that process? those questions are up for the government to decide. we don't want, as the prime and this has rightly said, to be paying into the eu after we leave. we sent me don't want to be paying extortionate sums for access to the single market. they would not pay for access to our market. but what we will do, and every body can see the logic of this, insofar as we are on the hook for things in the short term that we have agreed to. that is fair enough. i have never objected to that. and your point about the transition period, and the
6:12 pm
lengths of the transition period. i'm pretty that it shouldn't be too long, and people in business should have a clear sense of where we're going and what it should be like at the end of it. that is really what i am trained to sketch out. i'm trying to say that once you take back control of all these things, there are opportunities for the uk. and, we are an are opportunities for the uk. and, we are an incredible country, and incredible economy, and we should see that. if you don't get what you wa nt see that. if you don't get what you want in this transition, are you prepared to resign? well, ifi may say, you might these buttons like the wrong tree here. —— barking up the wrong tree here. —— barking up the wrong tree here. —— barking up the wrong tree. the transition period, i can see the vital importance of having clarity and certainty for business. what we all agree is that it shouldn't be too long. some ministers say the longer
6:13 pm
then you say. they say to — three yea rs. then you say. they say to — three years. let's not try and find rows where there aren't. i perfectly understand that we have two on our legal obligations. what i am trying to do is set out, in advance of the prime minister's speech in florence on friday, because i was involved in that brexit campaign quite a lot. people want to know where we are going. i think it is a good thing to have an opening drum roll about what this country can do. do you enjoy being foreign secretary? of course. will you miss it? when the burden of office is lifted from my shoulders i will of course look back with great
6:14 pm
pride on my doing all sorts of things. being a little cheeky there at the end with borisjohnson, speaking in the last few minutes. donald trump has used his first appearance at the un as president to criticise the organisation for failing to recognise is for presidential and not managing and bureaucracy. he won the cuts in the budget would create a good unsolvable rub them for the un, but progress is already being made on these issues. by donald trump's standard, this criticism was quite mild, wasn't it? he actually said that he and the us administration would be partners with the un in the all—important work of reforming this world body. what is reforming? is one previous secretary general said when asked how mini people like you, he said about half of them. that is
6:15 pm
the us criticism of the un. it is bloated and inefficient, that it doesn't protect whistle—blowers, it is not transparent, that the us is the biggest contributor to the un, providing 22 of the budget and 22% of the peacekeeping. they are threatening to slash those contributions and most meaningful progress is made on reform. this is what he had to say. in recent years the united nations has reached its full potential due to bureaucracy and mismanagement. while the budget has increased by 140% and its staff has more than doubled since 2000. we're not the results in line with this investment. but i know that under the secretary general, that is changing, and it is changing fast, and we have seen it. that is why we commend the secretary general, and its call for the united nations to focus more on people
6:16 pm
and less on bureaucracy. we seek a united nations that regains the trust of the people around the world. in order to achieve this the un must hold every level of management accountable, protect whistle—blowers, and focus on results, not the process. to honour the people of our nations, we must ensure that no one, and no memberstate, shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden. president donald trump there, striking a familiar theme. talking about how they shoulder and unfair burden. they are the main funder of nato, and it is the same here with the un. once again, donald trump calling on partners to step up and do their bit as well. one un source was telling me before donald trump
